St Faith’s Parish Centre is a purpose-built community facility just 200 metres from the seafront in Lee-on-the-Solent. The Centre is attached to St Faith’s Church, the parish church for the town.
There are three parts of the Centre which can be hired:
The Bulson Hall
The Bulson Hall was built in 1999, and is named after Ronald Bulson, who for many years lived in Lee-on-the-Solent. Upon his death, Bulson left a bequest to St Faith’s Church, and this gift along with other fundraising was used to build the Parish Centre.
The Bulson Hall is an ideal venue for parties and large meetings. It has a fully sprung floor, which makes it great for dancing! The Bulson Hall can seat 150 people for a meeting, and up to 120 people for a meal. The Hall has a large well-equipped catering kitchen.
The Lowry Room
The Lowry Room was built in 1979, and was a successor to the Lowry Hall, which was opposite the Library on Lee High Street. The Lowry Room is named after Eric, Harper and Patrick Lowry, three brothers who all were killed in action in World War One. Find out more about the Lowry history here.
The Lowry Room is the smallest of the Parish Centre rooms; it is great for children’s parties, meetings and smaller groups. The Lowry Room can seat 60 people, and has a well-equipped kitchen.
St Faith’s Church
St Faith’s was built in 1932-3, to replace the original tin church built in Victoria Square in the early days of Lee-on-the-Solent. St Faith’s seats 200 people, and has a sound system for large gatherings. There are chairs (not pews!) which can be moved to create different spaces as needed.

Each venue in the Centre has an induction loop for the hard of hearing. Prior notice is needed for its use, so please do tell us if you’d like to use the loop system.
